Welcome to my second monthly Hackney Labour Mayor’s Report for October & November 2016.

Dear Member,

Welcome to my October and November Mayor’s Report.

It’s been a busy month with some excellent results only this week in response to our campaigning on the Housing and Planning Act and for better rights for private renters. The Government backtracking on Pay to Stay and their pledge to end letting agent fees is a great result for Hackney and our hard work. It turned my attendance at the Axe the Housing Act Protest at Parliament on Wednesday into more of a celebration, but we must continue to keep up the fight against the forced sales of Council Homes and attacks on social tenancies.

This month myself and the Cabinet have also been campaigning against the large rises in business rates, which could impact on local businesses and the threat that changes to school funding might have on the borough – more on both can be found bellow. On Monday we launch a new engagement with residents about the future of our education, it will ask them what type of schools they want to see, whether they support selection and what role they think the Council should have in education.

In terms of new initiatives we will be agreeing a new Rough Sleepers Strategy on Monday, with plans for a new No Second Night Out hub in the borough. We are continuing to take forward our housing development plans at Nightingale Estate, Tower Court, Gooch House (new low cost homes to buy) and St Leonard’s Court. We have also launched the new Economic and Development Board that will be taking forward our ambitious agenda on investment, jobs, training and skills.

Best wishes,

Welcome to my second monthly Hackney Labour Mayor’s Report for October & November 2016.

This is my first monthly report as Hackney Labour Mayor to keep members updated about what l’ve been up to, new cabinet team, what Hackney is doing as a Labour council, and the key issues facing us as a borough. It won’t be possible to cover everything so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me, the cabinet or your local Councillors if you have any questions.

Dear Member,

Welcome to my first monthly Hackney Labour Mayor’s Report. It’s a first attempt so no doubt it will evolve in the coming months both physically, on email and online. I hope you find it interesting and I hope to include what I’ve been up to, what Hackney is doing as a Labour Council, and the key issues facing us as a borough. It won’t be possible to cover everything so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me, the Cabinet or your local councilors if you have any questions.

Let me first thank everyone that has been involved in campaigning over the past couple of months whether it was in the GLA/London Mayor Election, the various ward by-elections, the EU referendum, my Mayoral by-election, on the recent education campaign or the Hoxton West by-election (please get out and help if you can); none of us could do this without you and your support.

In this issue I cover my new Cabinet, my priorities as Mayor (including changes to the Manifesto), what we have achieved in the first few weeks and some key issues from the last few months.

Next week is Living Wage Week and while there will be more in next month’s report, I am very pleased to announce that Hackney is now an accredited Living Wage borough, meeting one of my manifesto commitments and building on the hard work of Jules to ensure that the Council paid London Living Wage not only to its staff, but also contractors.

Best wishes,
